Care with Chris

When it comes to women’s reproductive health, a high level of care and expertise is needed.

Whether you need specialist care for a complex condition such as endometriosis or PCOS, or more general services such as cervical screening, contraceptive advice or management of painful periods, I can help you. I have many years’ experience diagnosing and treating the full range of gynaecological problems.

My special interest is laparoscopy, a minimally invasive surgical procedure that I have performed hundreds of times. I also perform hysteroscopy and a number of other procedures.

Given that I have 14 years of training and many years of practice, you can feel confident that you are in highly experienced and capable hands.

Have a question on your mind?

You're not alone. Read up on some commonly asked questions.

What is a gynaecologist?

A gynaecologist is a doctor who specialises in women’s health and the female reproductive system (vagina, uterus and ovaries).

Should I see a gynaecologist if my period is irregular?

Having an irregular or infrequent period doesn’t necessarily mean there is anything wrong, but you should always see a gynaecologist for an assessment as it can be a sign of a condition such as PCOS or other hormone imbalances.

What do I need to bring to my appointment?

Bring a current referral from your GP, your Medicare card, your health insurance details and any test or scan results (e.g. blood tests and ultrasounds).

How often should I have a cervical screening test?

Unless a healthcare professional has advised otherwise, you should have a cervical screening test every 5 years.

Find out more about the recent changes to the cervical screening program.

Do you insert the Implanon and IUDs?

Yes, I perform the procedures for a range of different contraception options, including the Implanon, Mirena and copper IUD. Read my guide to your contraceptive options.
